Chocolate is one of the most popular food types in the world today.
There are many different foods that contain chocolate today including desserts such as cakes, puddings, mousse, chocolate brownies, and cookies.
It is a typically sweet, usually brown food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds which are then roasted and ground.
It is then made in the form of a liquid, paste or in a block or used as a flavoring ingredient in other foods. (source)
Can guinea pigs eat chocolate?
They can nibble on it, but it isn’t a food that should be purposely be fed to piggies due to its sugar and cocoa content.
It is just too sweet for them to eat unfortunately and should be avoided altogether as a food for them.
Unfortunately, this includes other types of chocolate foods such as Chocolate milk, cake, mousse, brownies, and biscuits.
They are great foods for us, not necessarily for them.
